The Prayer Of Mussaf

Updated: Feb 9, 2022

The Daily Halacha Moment - Mussaf 📙

״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן ‎העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


What are some customs of the Mussaf Prayer?


The prayer of Mussaf takes place after Keriat HaTorah. One should not pray Mussaf later than the seventh hour of the day. However, if one did not pray until after the seventh hour, even though one should not have waited so long, one may nevertheless pray Mussaf until Shkiyah. [1]

Strictly speaking, one can pray Mussaf before Keriat HaTorah. However, this should not be done except in extenuating circumstances.[2]

One who forgot to pray Mussaf cannot pray Arvit of the next night in order to make up for missing Mussaf.[3] Even though a woman is not obligated in praying Mussaf, she may pray Mussaf if she wants to.[4] If one accidentally began reciting a weekday Shemoneh Esrei instead of praying Mussaf, one should stop where he is and go back to “Tikanta Shabbat.”[5]
